I have a book entitled “The Red Sea Rules” by Robert Morgan. It is an excellent little book. It has ten God-given strategies for difficult times. He reminds us the same God who led you in, will lead you out!
In the book, Robert Morgan gives us ten rules to hold on to when we find ourselves in a “whirlwind” of mixed thoughts, while being challenged in some way. I would like to condense them and share them with you.
Now remember, these rules were for the Israelites crossing the Red Sea. We can learn from their experience. The circumstances may be different, but God is not!
RED SEA RULE #1: Realize that God means for you to be where you are.
RED SEA RULE #2: Be more concerned for God’s glory than for your own relief.
RED SEA RULE #3: Acknowledge your enemy, but keep your eyes on the Lord.
RED SEA RULE #4: Pray
RED SEA RULE #5: Stay calm and confident and give God time to work.
RED SEA RULE #6: When unsure, take the next–or move towards the next–logical step of faith.
RED SEA RULE #7: Envision God’s enveloping presence.
RED SEA RULE #8: Trust God to deliver in His own unique way.
RED SEA RULE #9: View your current crisis as a faith builder for the future.
RED SEA RULE #10: Don’t forget to praise Him!
Although not my original thoughts, they are, I believe, very timely for us today.
God is always in charge.
We must not grow weary.
Faith and prayer must be exercised.
Be strong in the Lord!
